Any which way

Chennai's traffic can be quite bad during the peak hours, but even then, it keeps crawling along. It is rare to experience a complete gridlock in Chennai - for that, you've got to be in Kolkata - but there are times when the vehicles appear to be on the verge of locking themselves into one. On this occasion, I was in a van and so seated at a higher elevation than usual; the 2- and 3-wheelers were merely obeying that law of nature which says a vacuum must be abhorred and were rushing in at all angles to fill the available gaps.

Though traffic can be a reasonable excuse for a lot of delays, I will not try to use it to explain the late posting of today's photo!
